The drive now to prevent the manufacture of inexpensive firearms is another way they can deny the poor the right to self defense.
That became real obvious after watching those Colorado hearings. They're out of touch with reality to boot.

There is a strong correlation between poverty and ignorance. It is not the poor I distrust, it is the ignorant. Eventually, the ignorant will outbreed the intelligent into extinction. Ever see Idiocracy?

Moe: "What is the difference between ignorance and indifference?"

IIRC, the quote was "Figures don't lie- but liars figure."
